Using GIS to Deliver Molecular Diagnostics
Track: Hospitals and Health Systems
Authors: Alice Rathjen
Genetic researchers world-wide have standardized the organization of genetic markers by their location within the genome. The challenge of the next decade is to enable a both public and private entities to work together so that this wealth of genomic discovery can translate into personalized maps of the genome at the point of care.
GIS is particularly well suited for helping Hospitals and Health Systems deliver personalized medicine.
